Frequently Asked Questions

How does this plugin enhance the pattern editing experience?

WordPress’s pattern editing experience improves with each release, but not everyone uses Full-Site Editing, and patterns can quickly get out of hand. This plugin enables the default built-in post type so that you can edit the patterns individually and even preview the pattern on the frontend of the site. The ability to map and rename categories will also aid immensely in pattern organization.

What is the Pattern Importer, and how does it work?

When you copy a pattern from site to site, the images aren’t carried over and reference the old site.

With the pattern importer block, it’ll scan the content for any images and replace them with local copies.
